If you find daily news pieces about joblessness, the economy, the environment, climate change, global unrest, and energy and water supply issues, alarming, don't just prep, transition. Don Hall is our guest speaker and will explain the international grassroots Transition movement that is providing innovative approaches to dealing with the fading away of cheap oil and gas and emerging trends toward more localized business. Whether as simple as sharing sources for locally produced food and goods or investing in locally-owned, independent businesses, making the transition to a more thoughtful economy can result from community scale actions.
Mr. Hall is the founder and Executive Director of Transition Sarasota, one of a number of locally based, but united efforts in the U.S. and internationally that are developing simple, community scale projects that are contributing to meeting the challenges that a shift in energy sources and climate conditions are presenting. Before his work in Sarasota, Florida, he served as the Education and Outreach Coordinator for Transition Colorado, the first official Transition Initiative in North America and a statewide hub. Don holds a Master's in Environmental Leadership from Naropa University and is a certified Permaculture Designer and U.S. Transition Trainer.
